HomeGrown 07/17/11 – Dandelions and Sheep

by Brad Yost on July 18, 2011

On this episode, HomeGrown looks at the growing importance of sheep in Kentuckiana agriculture, and the culinary and medicinal properties of dandelions.  Dr. Peter Gail – author of many books and articles on dandelions and foraging – offers information and recipes on doing something with the weed besides cursing it.  Meanwhile, Kentucky lamb expert Jim Mansfield meets us  at Jeneen Wiche’s farm to talk about what it takes to raise a flock of sheep – and why Katahdins are a great breed.  Julie Schweitzer, director of the Arts Council of Southern Indiana, talks about a monarch butterfly “way station” recently added to its property.
